Not to break up a good conversation but does anyone on the boards live in the Milwaukee, WI area? Furthermore, where are you guys from and hows the whisky scene where you live? We have a couple great whisky bars here in Milwaukee and some liquor stores that down right give it away at prices sometimes I can believe! Although, I haven't met many whisky lovers here which seems odd to me, well...only a little given that it is Milwaukee and we do beer here pretty well! :)

I live in Ghent (Belgium) and the whisky scene is quite impressive here (little did I know less than 6 months ago). We have some very good whisky shops (some online) with a huge range, but we can also easily import from Schotland and the UK (which, I admit) is sometimes cheaper (even with the shipping charge).

I'm in the San Diego, California area. I'm relatively new, but the availability of whisky here looks pretty standard for the US, which is to say, rather bland.

I'm based in London. I can't say there is a buzzing whisky scene here but maybe I'm not looking in the right places, I share a few drams with my friends and thats good for me.

We have a some good shops dotted about and a number of whisky bars (which I don't often get time to make the most of).

Leuven, Belgium here. There are some good shops nearby, but none actually in Leuven really. A few whisky bars, none too good :) BUT, a couple good friends with good whiskies is all I need :)

and the occasional whisky festival ofcourse ;)

I've just moved back to Belgium as well, after living in Madrid, Spain for a couple of years.

I know at least 8 great whisky shops in Belgium, which is quite spectacular if you know they all offer hundreds of expressions. Also, taxes and prices are quite low. We're spoiled really. In Spain I couldn't find any decent shops within a 200 km. range.

I'm located in Karlshamn, Sweden. The whisky scene in Sweden is rather good I think, even in a small town like Karlshamn there is at least one whisky society with regular tastings, usually 4 per year. If you want to buy whisky the Swedish Systembolaget (www.systembolaget.se) has quite an extraordinary selection of something like 800 different whiskies.

Sounds good gents! I would love to get over the Europe one of these days! I'm a huge motorsports nut and seeing the Silverstone 24 hour, Spa 24, Nurburgring 24, and Le Mans would allow me to die a happy man! Plus, just traveling and seeing different cultures, places, processes of life would be something to savor. If anyone wants to come visit here, I'll trade you apartments for a couple weeks! ;)
